Fallon is the Founder of TCK9, and has always believed in “walking what you talk,” as well as leading by example. She’s a firm believer in education, whether it be for dogs or people, and has always believed there is an answer for most any question should you take the time to find it.
An animal lover from birth, Fallon spent her childhood bringing home strays, training and rehabilitating them, and competing on horseback in 3-Day Events, before later deciding to turn her attention towards animal welfare and rescue as a teenager after spending time volunteering with the local shelter.
That passion is what led her to start the longest-running Doberman Pinscher Rescue in the state of TN, Tennessee Doberman Rescue Plus (www.TDR.dog), and attain her MBA degree while running a rescue, working full time, getting married to the love of her life, and having a child. In the 10+ years since founding TDR+, Fallon has personally been hands-on in the rescue of thousands of dogs (and still counting), and has grown the organization from a fledgling group of fosters – to a large 501(c)3 rescue with volunteers and fosters throughout the southeast.
As a business owner and self-admitted dog nerd, Fallon owns and operates multiple dog training locations throughout the southeast, with the newest being The Complete K9, which is located in her hometown of Sweetwater, TN. While she’s extremely passionate about training and has years of professional experience in Obedience, K9 Detection & Scent Work, Aggression & Anxiety Management, and Service Dog Training (including Medical Alert and Bio-Dog Odor Training) – Fallon’s passion lies not only in helping dogs behaviorally, but also through Nutrition, Wellness, and Fitness in order to help each client achieve their goals in the most complete way possible. When not actively working with her trainers and clients, she also competes regularly in Scent Work trials and attends numerous continuing education seminars and classes yearly (because she believes there should never be a point where an instructor stops learning and growing).
Fallon is an AKC Evaluator, Certified Sport Detection Dog Trainer Level 2 through Ford K9, Certified Bio-Dog Trainer (Cancer and Medical Alert Detection) through the In-Situ Foundation, Certified Pet First Aid & CPR Instructor, Pet Nutrition Counselor, and member of the APDT (Association of Professional Dog Trainers), DPCA (Doberman Pinscher Club of America), DPCN (Doberman Pinscher Club of Nashville), UDC (United Doberman Club), and the NDTC (Nashville Dog Training Club).
